Welcome to Stourbridge House – Young Adults

Age Range: 16+
Purpose: Moderate-Severe LD, ASD, Associated Behavioural Challenges, PMLD, complex care
Beds: 6

Stourbridge House sits within Progress’ range of preventative services. The service is focused on supporting families to build resilience and take a break from day-to-day caring responsibilities, while enabling young people to enjoy a break away from the family home.

The service has been purpose built to provide specialist accommodation for young adults with a range of disabilities and additional needs as above. Young adults accommodated at the home may also present with sensory impairment, physical disabilities, sexualised behaviours or complex health care needs.

As we offer care for adults with a diverse range of needs, we undergo a careful matching process. This means that when people stay, they are with other people with similar needs and abilities. This keeps everyone safe and maximises the opportunities to build friendships and relationships.

We aim to support people in all aspects of their care; working towards agreed targets, which focus people’s personal development on areas which present barriers.

A lot of emphasis is put on gaining independence and enjoying life to the maximum, with activities planned around their individual needs. As part of our commitment to providing high-quality services, we are continually striving to help young people achieve their goals and enjoy their lives.

Stourbridge House delivers short breaks, transitions from children’s services, outreach to home and community, emergency respite from family homes, preparation/training for independence, assessment beds, intermediate care to step-down from hospital.

All bedrooms are suitable for wheelchair users, with two rooms fitted with integrated ceiling track hoists. The service is equipped with the latest technology, enabling remote monitoring of young people. This reduces the need to conduct physical checks; giving the individuals a better night sleep and enabling more accurate monitoring of medical conditions.

Registered Manager Amanda Percival has 11 years’ experience within the care sector in various settings, i.e. domiciliary care, residential for adults with learning and physical disabilities. Within this period, Amanda has had five years of care sector managerial experience.
